Vladimir Maz’ ya: Friend and Mathematician. Recollections

  • Israel Gohberg


It gives me great pleasure to write about Vladimir Maz’ ya whom I have known for almost forty years. For me his name is closely connected with Leningrad, its mathematical school and, particularly, with the name of Solomon G. Mikhlin, and I would like to begin my recollections a decade before I met Maz’ ya.
